Spanish: Grades Pre-K through 2

The goals for Spanish language classes at this level are to broaden the student’s understanding of the Spanish language, enhance their awareness of the world’s diversity, give them confidence to express themselves in a new way, and prepare them for future language learning.

At each grade level students will practice and build on previously acquired knowledge. Students follow directions, sing, answer questions, listen to stories, and play using their new Spanish language skills.

At the PreK level topics covered include: greetings and salutations, numbers 1-10, colors, shapes, immediate family members, common animals, body parts, and clothing.

At the Kindergarten level topics covered include: greetings and salutations, numbers 1-20, colors and shapes, the alphabet, the days and months, objects in the class room, immediate family members, common animals, body parts, clothing, the seasons and weather, and parts of a house.
At the First grade level topics covered include: greetings and salutations, numbers 1-40, colors and shapes, the alphabet, the date and calendar, objects in the class room, personal feelings, family members, animals, body parts and clothing, common modes of transportation, the season and weather, and parts of a house.

At the Second grade level topics covered include: greetings and salutations, numbers 1-70, colors and shapes, beginner reading and writing skills, the date and calendar, objects in the class room, personal feelings, family members, body parts and clothing, modes of transportation, the seasons and weather, household rooms and furnishings, basic daily activities, and cultural traditions and holidays in Spanish-speaking countries.

Spanish: Grades 3 through 8

This is an introduction to Spanish with a focus on building confidence in reading, pronouncing and basic travel communication skills.  The objectives of the classes include the student successfully being able to do the following in a Spanish speaking location:

  1. Order something to eat
  2. Buy an item of interest
  3. Read signs and ask for directions from a native speaker
  4. Make a friend who is their peer and speaks Spanish

Class time will always include active speaking, listening and games.  It is through this activity that we find that we truly own the information.

Spanish 5

There will be occasional light homework and a few coordinating projects with art and homeroom classes.

Spanish 6

Spanish 7

While accomplishing the above goals, the student will learn proper grammar, vocabulary, Spanish idioms and conversational skills. There will be homework assignments due each class period and a few coordinating projects with art class throughout the year. The student will be expected to participate actively in class as it is imperative to the learning process.

Spanish 8

There will be homework assignments due each class period and a few coordinating projects with art class throughout the year. The student will be expected to participate actively in class as it is imperative to the learning process. The 8th graders will be held to the highest expectation and will cover the most material over the course of the year.  It is the hope that the diligent student will be well prepared for high school Spanish 1 and possibly Spanish 2.
